(The Robert E. Howard Library Vol VI, Bean Books 1996)
cover by C. Kelly
Introduction essay by S. M. Stirling The Dead remember (1936) Black Canaan (1936) Kelly the Conjure-Man (1964) The Valley of the Lost (1967) The Man on the Ground (1933) Black Hound of Death (1936) "For the Love of Barbara Allen" (first published 1966 ) The Hoofed Thing (first published 1970) Moon of Zambebwei (1935) (aka The Grisly Horror) The Horror from the Mound (1932)
The Robert E. Howard Library from Bean Books was a set of paperbacks collecting all the non-Conan stuff. Maybe it should deserve its own thread as it has some nice fantasy covers by Kelly.
The introduction here concentrate on each story and take great efforts to explain the inherent racism of some of the stories.

Most of my stuff having disappeared, I was very grateful to the Mrs for buying me a couple of anthos for my birthday last year. Unfortunately they mainly contain extracts from novels rather than short stories, but a vampire/shape shifter one threw up The Horror From The Mound. What a terrific tale. It's a long time since anything actually gave me an actual shiver but there's a scene in that story....
